That was the week...

Here’s the first of our weekly round-ups of what the Manchester bloggers are up to.

It seems that majority of bloggers are still getting over the festivities as blogs are still fairly quiet . But there are still a few interesting bits around.

Picture of the week
Paul in a cow hat. Ickle Web has kept us all up to date with his travels over the holiday period. But this has got to be the best picture of the week - Paul in a cow hat in Edinburgh. I presume he was there for Hogmoooooonay.

So what have we learnt this week?

The old British Council building at Grand Island is now just a shell - see 'Manchester Grand Island former BT Building under demolition'. I remember reporting from there on the day it opened. They’d spent a million pounds on a carpet. Wonder where that is now.

Tom has a new camera - see 'New Year & New Camera'. And like the good little boy he told Santa he was, he's been letting others use it too to take photographs of the sky - see 'Jane's Sky-Watch'

Almost Witty doesn’t understand Girls Aloud – see 'Lost In Music…'

And Corrie’s Gail’s eldest was originally going to be called David Daniel Tilsley, till Gail realised his initials would be DDT - see 'This week in Coronation Street history'

Let us know what you're up to via the e-mail address and we'll feature the best of the blogs here. Look out too for some guest bloggers starting next week on subjects ranging from blogging to not blogging.
